Undercover NISA Agents Deployed To Hunt Down Shabaab Assassins

Somalia's National Intelligence Agency (NISA) has launched a special unit in the wake of a surge in assassinations in the capital Mogadishu, Radio Dalsan reports. The agents in plainclothes have been deployed in the notorious parts of the city where most of the assassinations have occurred. A Radio Dalsan reporter said that he identified several NISA agents in plainclothes but armed in and around Bakara Market an area that has recorded the highest number of assassinations. At least 14 assassinations have been reported since the beginning of the Muslim month of Ramadan. Notably there has not been a major explosion in the capital and more checkpoints erected in all the districts to avert attacks. Al-Shabaab on Thursday released its first ever video featuring its militants executing assassinations in Mogadishu.
